Conservative scumbags blame earthquake on victims
Aid is pouring into Haiti as one of the poorest countries tries to recover from a devastating earthquake.
Officials feared the death toll from the devastating earthquake could reach into the tens of thousands. Cargo planes with food, water, medical supplies, shelter and sniffer dogs are headed to the Caribbean island located a few hundred miles from Florida. The news is filled with horrific images of destroyed homes, injured people and dead children. But the response from some conservatives is even more disturbing than seeing dead children on TV.
After this latest rant, I don’t even believe Pat Robertson is a Christian, let alone a minister. The former Republican Presidential candidate and “Christian Broadcasting Network's” "700 Club" founder and host blamed the earthquake in Haiti on the Haitian people's alleged “pact with Satan.”
He blamed the earthquake in Haiti on the Haitian people's alleged pact with Satan.
"They said, 'we will serve you if you will get us free from the French,'" Robertson said on his show. "True story. And so, the devil said, 'okay it's a deal.' And they kicked the French out. You know, the Haitians revolted and got themselves free. But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other."
Unbelievable. True story? Where, in his warped mind? Perhaps he forgot some 80 percent of Haitians are Catholic.
The right will use any thing to attack President Obama no mater how small or how much of a leap they have to make. The leader of the Republican Party and scumbag Rush Limbaugh said Obama would use Haiti to get closer to the “light-skinned and dark-skinned black [communities] in this country.”
Limbaugh has a history of blaming the victims, especially dark-skinned ones like he did the victims of Hurricane Katrina. He has even attacked Haiti in the past. In May when former President Bill Clinton was appointed as UN special envoy to Haiti, Limbaugh had this to say, "I'm just gonna tell you, if I was named envoy to Haiti, I'd quit government. Envoy to Haiti? You can't even pick up a prostitute down there without genuine fear of AIDS."
He would know.
Limbaugh was detained by authorities in 2006 when they found a bottle of Viagra in his bag at Palm Beach International Airport. The prescription was not in his name. He was returning from a vacation in neighboring Dominican Republic.
